Dolphins Sign DT Sylvester Williams, Activate LB Mike Hull From IR


The Miami Dolphins announced Wednesday that they’ve signed veteran DT Sylvester Williams to a contract and activated LB Mike Hull from injured reserve.

Williams, 29, was taken with the No. 28 overall pick back in 2013. He played out the final year of his rookie contract but the Broncos elected to not pick up his fifth-year option, which allowed him to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

The Titans signed Williams to a three-year, $16.5 million contract that included $7.25 million guaranteed last year before releasing him in a move that freed up $3,083,332 of available cap space this offseason.

Williams later signed a one-year contract with the Lions, but was recently released to make room for Damon Harrison.

In 2018, Williams has appeared in six games for the Lions and recorded six tackles and no sacks.

Hull, 27, signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2015. He was among the Dolphins’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason but was later added to their practice squad.

Since then, Hull has returned to the Dolphins on one-year, exclusive rights contracts. Miami placed him on injured reserve at the start of the regular season.

In 2017, Hull appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded 35 tackles and a fumble recovery.
